‘Rebuffed’ Jets can’t give general manager job away

JANUARY 13, 2013
by ZACK KELBERMAN

The Jets have cast a wide net in their search to replace general manager Mike Tannenbaum, with the job seemingly up for grabs.

Unfortunately for Gang Green, they can’t seem to reel anyone in.

“They can’t give the position away,” FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday. “They are now calling back candidates that turned them down, saying please reconsider.”

Among the most reliable insiders, Glazer added that New York is getting “rebuffed a lot” due to several circumstances — Rex Ryan not included.

@JayGlazer via twitter:

Rex isn't what GM candidates are concerned with - their cap situation, personnel, QB and the circus turned a lot of candidates off

The Jets have interviewed at least 12 known candidates, including ex-Bears GM Jerry Angelo, considered a “name to watch.” But most up-and-comers, such as 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, appear to be wary of a desolate situation, and don’t watch to hitch their star to a barren wagon.

With Ryan heading into 2013 as a lame duck coach, an offense that’s devoid of talent, and a salary cap held hostage by a series of bad contracts, it’s no surprise the Jets are on Plan Z at this point.

The New York Jets will hold follow-up discussions with three general manager candidates: former Chicago Bears GM Jerry Angelo, Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen and Pittsburgh Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, according to sources.

More From ESPN.com
After interviewing no fewer than eight candidates for their general manager vacancy, the Jets finally are in the homestretch of the process, writes Rich Cimini. Blog

Those conversations could begin Tuesday, and the Jets hope to have a new GM by Friday, the sources said.

Angelo, who had an impressive interview, is high on the Jets' radar, sources said.

Jets assistant general manager Scott Cohen also interviewed well, according to sources.

The Jets also interviewed former Denver Broncos GM Ted Sundquist late last week, according to a league source.

Angelo, who was fired from his post in Chicago after the 2011 season, is the only known candidate with experience as a GM. He was the Bears' GM for 11 years, compiling an 87-73 record and building the team that reached Super Bowl XLI.

Khan has been Pittsburgh's chief contract negotiator for more than a decade and is known for his cap expertise.

Owner Woody Johnson confirmed last week that Rex Ryan is part of the package, meaning the next GM has to retain the coach for at least one season. Johnson said he hasn't received any negative backlash from potential candidates.

Information from ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini and ESPN.com AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley was used in this report.

That is what your opinion of Colbert's ability means in logical terms.

Colbert is UNDEFEATED in the first round. Think about that for a second. UNDEFEATED in his first round picks in his entire Steelers career. Not one bust. Every single first rounder has started for the Steelers and started multiple seasons except for the last two because they just got drafted.

Burress
Hampton
Simmons
Polamalu
Roethlisberger
Miller
Holmes
Timmons
Hood
Pouncey
Heyward
DeCastro

Colbert is one of the best, IF not the best 1st round draft pickers ever. Not even that schmuck up in New England has had even close to the success that Colbert has had. So, wake the eff up and use your brain. Colbert is a stud. The results say it, not me or anyone else, it just is.

I hate to argue this because I love Colbert but new England has us beat. I just looked it up and there the best draft team the last 10 years . Yes even there first rounders. I belive Steelers were 9th. I give you the Steelers always hit on first rounders but overall there are a few better. Pats hav all 10 of there first rounders from 2001 uup still playing.
